  • A funny episode

    This episode was so funny. I like it alot when Lucy makes a bet with Ricky that she won't gossip anymore. Then Lucy end u gossiping because Ricky tricked her. Alot of funny parts in this episode. Ricky pretends to talk in his sleep so Lucy can lose the bet and whoever wins the bet gets breakfast in bed for a month. A funny part in this episode was when Lucy tryed to make Ricky's rumor come true when Ricky tryed to make Lucy to lose the bed' It was funny when Lucy was acting the gossip with out talking. sorry I wrote a review for the episode the gossip.moreless
